The new EDIUS Multicam Sync feature allows creating multicam sequences very fast by comparing timecode or audio waveforms as well as other sync options like Rec Time, Clip Marker and Clip in and out points.
Create a folder for each camera like Cam1 and Cam2 and place all clips of each camera in the corresponding folders.
Select the desired sync point like Timecode or Audio or Audio around marker.
By choosing Audio around the marker, you save a lot of time because EDIUS will only analyse a few seconds around the clip marker area in case your clips are of a long duration like say 90min.
In order to use this option, you need to add a clip marker to the desired Cam1 and Cam2 clips. Place a Cam1 clip in the player window and listen to audio such as a certain spoken word or say a person walking to a lectern, then add a marker, then do the same with the corresponding Cam2 clip, the marker needs to be only approximate, plus or minus a few seconds.
When the multicam consists of lots of short clips, there is no need to choose the audio around the marker option because analyzing will be fast enough.
In most cases I choose the Timecode option since all my cameras are synced to the same Timecode before each shoot.
Select desired audio channel like Stereo or Monaural (Default is Monaural)
Type a suitable name for the Multicam Sequence or use the suggested name
Select New Sequence and click OK
